      Heads that are warm, dense, focused, and with a clear attack in all tuning and dynamic ranges.

      The Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead offers an edge control ring mounted under 2 plies of 7-mil film. The EC2S coated drumheads control vibration instead of eliminating it. It also dampens higher overtones, enhances low-end attack, and supports a broader tuning range.

      Evans EC2 Sound Shaping Technology (SST)
      Evans improved EC2S drumheads contain Evans' exclusive Sound Shaping Technology (SST). Sound Shaping Technology allows the drumheads to be fully optimized for each individual size by varying the thickness and density of the damping material, ensuring greatly improved performance and tone across the entire kit. Unlike other heads that lack SST, Evans EC2Ss contain the ability to balance attack and tone for each size. The result is a drumhead series fine-tuned for attack, tone, length of sustain, and ease of tuning. Packed with a more balanced and pre-EQ'd sound across the full kit, the vans EC2S with SST will make your toms sound better than you ever thought possible.

      Here is what the pros are saying:
      "So I just gave the new EC2s a test run overseas. They sound great!! I used them on a Mapex Orion kit. The new muffling rings are nice! After pounding these for a few shows they stayed focused."
      —Chris Pennie

      "The new EC2s are so incredible! The attack and tone has somehow been magnified, when I'm playing these heads the feel, definition and tone that I'm able to draw out of them is amazing and is so sweet to the ear."
      —Camille Grainer

      "The new Evans EC2 SSTs are amazing. My toms sound so warm and lush. These drum heads bring out the true sound of the drums."
      —Dean Butterworth

      "The best just got better – the new EC2 SST drumheads are incredible!"
      —Preston Heyman – The Wolfmen and U.K. Session Supremo

      Doesn't Play Well With Rings

      By Aaron

      from VA

      Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

      I got the original EC2 "Edge Control" heads a few years ago and loved them. They're no longer being manufactured, I believe, as the new generation of EC2 SST heads have taken their place. I got these EC2 SST frosted heads for my church's drum set, hoping they would attain a better sound quality over the stock heads. They do, but they don't quite act as I was expecting them to. We ordered Aquarian rings along with them; however, when I tuned the first tom to my liking and placed the appropriate ring on the head, there was an awful vibration between the ring and the frosted coating. Now don't get me wrong; these heads do sound okay. But if you want your toms to have a quick decay and like use plastic rings to achieve such, these heads will disappoint you. I should've gotten the Evans EC2 SST clear heads.

      Overall, good heads unless you use rings.
      The reason I rated this low is because I don't like the frosted coating.
      Good quality. Well-made. Awesome heads for certain uses.
      They don't go well with plastic rings, so that takes the value down.

      EC2 batter/ G resonant

      By Peart freak

      from Buffalo, NY

      Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

      Lets face it, reviews can be very biased. But, I will try and be open minded. These heads are very BALANCED. I play Mapex Orion Classics. (Maple). There are a lot of factors to consider. the physical properties of your kit, playing style, type of music, etc. I have a very large number of toms. 8,8,10,12,13,14,16,18. Couldn't get a 6, so I tune the 8's differently. Having tried other heads, I found the EC2's to be very midland in all respects, which for me is perfect. Easy to tune and they stay there. Good action. They allow the individual drums to be distinct and expressive. Playing a very lively head on my kit doesn't work for the style of music I play. Rock. With fast runs and a lot of notes, an open head sounds like playing the piano with the loudness (sustain) pedal pressed all of the time. Filling but muddy. I don't like a thud either. Drums should have a voice. EC2's give the drum good attack with just enough sustain without being present to long to disturb the next drum or more notes on the same drum. Even tone. Sound good with or without mic'ing. I also us a wood tip drumstick. It does make a difference, so if you use nylon tips, maybe the EC2 coated would work better. For the bottom. I like the G resonant. The EC resonant is a bit to choking for me. The sound control on the top coupled with the more open and balanced bottom creates a great balance and very flavorful. As with any heads, try one drum first and see if you like it. With the EC2 batter and the G resonant, you don't need any crazy tuning techniques. Match them up and on you go. Because your drum is resonating, find that sweet spot and go with it. You will like it better regardless of what heads you put on. Don't push or pull to much. Highly recommended

      New ain't cool

      By Randy Benson

      from Oklahoma

      Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

      I got some coated SST heads. They didn't muffle at all! I had to get some tone rings to make them sound good. Never again will I try something new.

      Really good on Birch!

      By bananas

      from hancock, mn

      Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

      I put these on my gretsch birch kit because i wanted something a little warmer-sounding (i previously had g2 clears, and they were just too bright for an already-bright birch set). i found these and i was pleasantly surprised. they're warm, durable, and give plenty of tone. i'd say it's a good balance between warmth and attack, but like i said, i play birch shells. nice responsiveness too! i can really do dynamics with these.

      Just put a fusion set on my Mapex 10 -16" jazz kit, just one word, "awesome" (even the 10" tuned w/ease - someone out there has obvious tuning issues) ...anyway, great responce, attack & warm tone when tuned properly.

      Excellent

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

      I replaced EC2's that were on my toms with these. The EC2's were already way better than other tom heads, but these really are excellent heads. I'm using them on a Tama Bubinga set...even crummy heads sound good on them, but these SST's really bring out the lows without any ringiness or boingyness. Try them with Remo fiberskyn 3's on the bottom (stretch both heads first though). Deep toms with tone and playability. That's what it's about for me....of course if you prefer that boingy overtone, go with ambassadors

      Really Bad

      By DrJack6

      from NY

      Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

      These are great heads for any drum that is 12 inches or bigger but no matter how many ways you try it, they will ALWAYS wrinkle during application on 8 and 10inch drums.

      Must Have

      By Fly

      from Alabama

      Comments about Evans EC2S Frosted Drumhead:

      If anyone out there is considering these heads, go for it!I currently have a Gretsch catalina Ash kit with these heads and the sound is unbelievable.I have tried Remo heads,G-1's,and a few others,but these take the cake.I heard someone say that these heads do not sound good on Gretsch drums,but they are wrong.It's all about bearing edges and tuning,and these heads tune very easily.Buy them,you won't be sorry!
